“Food” Movies

I was going through some papers the other day and came across a list I started long time ago and have added to several times over the years. I share it here with you now. I call it the list of

    Movies With Food or Drink in the Title

I know there are some stretches here, and quite a few groaners as well. The worst is that I think I’ve seen all but three or four of them… all the way through. *sigh*

Please feel free to let me know if there are any I have missed. This list has been compiled w/o any web searching at all, it has been entirely from memory and input from friends, so I welcome any additions. 🙂

  1. Goddammit Arkay! I woke up 3-4 times last night trying to think of one movie to add to your list. I’m still thinking…..and sleepy too! 😉

  2. Under the Cherry Moon-Prince

  3. To Wulfgar 😛 (I’m nothing if not completely thorough…)

    and Thank-you Andrea, I’ll have to look that one up 🙂
    (and add it to the list)

  4. I view The Coca-Cola Kid as less of a food film and more of a “underage incest shower scene” film. 🙂
